Do home-made masks protect you from the new coronavirus? It is discovered by French experts

French health experts have advised people not to wear homemade masks. This is because according to them, they offer less protection against new variants of the coronavirus that are also contagious.
The committee of scientists, which reports to the French government, says the second-category masks are unlikely to stop the spread of the "English" variant of the coronavirus, or other variants from Brazil and South Africa.
This expert advice, which was presented to the ministers on Monday but has not yet been published, also suggests that the social distance from 1 be maintained at two meters.
"Masks with second category material filter only 70 percent, while the first category masks, such as surgical ones, can protect up to 95 percent if properly maintained. As this variant spreads faster, it makes sense to use masks with more protection, ”says Daniel Camus, of the Pasteur Institute in Lille.
